By 09:20...

A little later than normal for me, the first stage of bread making was in the airing cupboard on its first rise (alarm clock duly set for 40 minutes). Bedding had been washed and was airing on the new radiator hangers - bedroom window ajar to cope with any condensation.

Eventually the sun came out and I thought about moving the washed duvet cover outside. Instead, it was attached to the patio door curtain rail by pegs, it dried by mid afternoon on this south facing window.

Trying to use the last bit of out of date dehydrated strawberry powder, some small strawberry sponge cakes were duly made, after the bread had been cooked:
For tea we had a tiny piece of liver, mixed with a small sliced pork steak and mushrooms, with carrot mash and gravy - yum.

  1. Loving the home made bread. I have some on its first rise as I type. Doesn't the baking make the home smell wonderful?

  3. Mmm, bread and cakes, lovely, nothing better than home baking. I'd like to make several loaves so we always have one or two in the freezer, but need to eat a bit more of the contents first to make more room! Getting there slowly. We haven't had liver for ages....not sure why as we both like it. But then again, as mentioned, we still have lots in the freezer to eat, so it will be a while still before we have it...

  4. The bread looks delicious, I am afraid I am quite lazy with bread and use a bread making machine.

    1. Nothing wrong with a machine, cheaper than the oven I would think.

  6. I used to really enjoy pig's liver, done in lovely gravy and served with mash and peas.
    We had brilliant sunshine and blue sky mid-morning so I stuck some things in on a quick wash, only to find that it was raining before the cycle had finished! I've had spaghetti with a delicious sauce and Quorn meatballs for tea. First time I've tried the meatballs, and they were scrummy!

    1. Liver gravy is just wonderful. Not heard about the meatballs.

  7. Your bread looks lovely. I love liver, but Harvey is not too thrilled with it so I haven't made it in a very long time. I now want to find a nice piece or two and make them for dinner next month.

    God bless.
